as high-ranking, frankly as former president bill clinton to go and be the negotiator. we need a person of enormous prestige and influence so have these parties sit down together. we're crumbling all over the middle east. >> john: that was john mccain talking about how much work is needed to regain credibility. >> boy. that will hurt your head if you think about that too long. >> john: somebody should tell him we have already had bill clinton trying to negotiate middle east peace. it has been attempted before and in fact the prime mainster of israel paid for it with his life. you know, i really think that there is no military solution to israel and palestine, and i'm on the side of any christian jew or muslim who is trying to solve our problems non-violently, because the only solution i think, is the next gandhi is going to have to come from israel or palestine. the next person to understand that non-violence is the only way to get social change out of a situation like this and that will also be a person male or female who understands social media and the digital
frankly as former president bill clinton to go and be the negotiator. i know he'd hate me for saying that, but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together as an honest broker. >> joining me now is mark murray. mark, what are your thoughts on what john mccain he floated out there? >> well, you know, bill clinton was a troubleshooter for barack obama during the presidential contest, and he certainly knows his dealings in that really troubling, very difficult terrain of middle east politics. i would say he might be able to help out and negotiate a cease-fire, but actually completely solving the whole middle east process in conflict there with something he was unable to do as president. it's been a thorny issue for lots of presidents, and you understand why that world is so volatile and has repercussions throughout the entire globe. >> mark, back to first read and some of the assessment. obviously, the asap notion is an obvious one. we know that the white house and president talking with both morsi and netanyahu today. you heard -- i don't know

's being removed from office, as a single side note. i mean, bill clinton went through -- he was keel hauled. >> yeah, yeah. >> this guy get a single side note. >> just a pesky asterisk. but, you know, politicians and presidents for years in washington have been using david petraeus as cover. if you can get underneath -- >> republicans said that name over and over. >> wrap yourself in the petraeus flag and you got immunity from almost anything. >> what is president obama worried about petraeus? >> i think it's -- i think he's being gracious now. i think maybe buyer's remorse, some people once you get into the details of this whacky situation, they're thinking maybe he should have stuck with him, maybe everything moved too fast, maybe he's -- he did what he did but maybe he's the victim -- >> before you jump to that, and i am -- the older i get the more leaning i get towards these -- >> meaning -- >> if it got out he had this affair with the reporter and also got out that the president knowing about it had kept him in office, what would that have been like? >> that would have been bad.
not raise taxes during recession. even bill clinton said a millionaire surcharge is not going to help our debt situation. but both congress and the president, they need to go to the negotiating table and work out a deal and not leave until we working is out. jon: but in the past they haven't exactly shown that ability. i mean they haven't shown the ability to get that done. >> no. it is a new day, a new congress. congress doesn't look that different than it did before. >> a new attitude. not a new congress. i think now the american people have spoken and they didn't change anything but giving them a second chance. >> but what we also know, new day for republicans because pew research as well as "washington post" research polls show republicans will take the hit and credit for a deal not getting done if it does. there is that incentive as well. you have to look at ronald reagan as well as henry kissinger, when they went into negotiations, said you have to come willing to truly cut a deal. you may get 90%. >> takes both sides. obama is very good in liberal rhetoric blaming republicans. even
happened to -- john edwards was blown up. gary hart was blown up. bill clinton was almost blown out of the presidency. anybody that doesn't know this is going to be the consequence of what happens to you if you get involved in this, and you're running the cia is preposterous. >> eleanor. >> he's not the first powerful man to do something fallish when it comes to an extramarital affair, and he won't be the last. but he is, or was, head of the cia, and that could make him a potential target for blackmail. when you look into this, there's not much more here, i don't believe. there's no evidence of a breach in national security. the fbi apparently acted by the book. you don't tip off the white house when you're engaging in a potentially criminal investigation. the agent in florida who then worried that the investigation was being stalled and went to a republican congressman who went to eric cantor, he has an illustrious record. he helped bring down the millennium plot. you can't blame him, either, for his apparent concern that this was not being studied appear prop it i can't tellly. so
is the more hawkish person with the bin laden raid, with the afghanistan search. that said, bill clinton and joe biden are close to each other. hillary clinton has served barack obama well. there would probably be some sort of conversation to try to avert that kind of head-to-head. joe biden has run for president a couple of times before. and he has not done particularly well in the iowa caucuses. >> obviously hillary clinton would have one president in her corner, no matter what, bill clinton. but she has served president obama very well as has joe biden. wouldn't that president the president in a very tight spot? >> it would. >> well, like jonathan said i think some conversations will have to be had behind the scenes before they decide who will go forward. but i think the president will maybe say something -- you know, he'll try to stay out of it, but i think he'll make his choice known behind the scenes. >> so who on the right would be the biggest opponent? would it be a christie or rubio? >> those are certainly two candidates that could come forward in 10 t 2016. marco rubio saying h

-ranking, frankly, as former president bill clinton to go and be the negotiator. i know he'd hate me for saying that, but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together as an honest broker. but we have a lot of work to do to regain some credibility because we're crumbling all over the middle east . al qaeda is on the comeback. you saw in the last couple of days, fighting between the kurds ankurds and iraqi on the border. the whole mali situation where al qaeda has taken over. al qaeda training camps are in western iraq. the iranians continue, as we see, the latest i.a.e.a. report on their path towards nuclear weapons. you look at the whole middle east and it's been a significant failure north to mention our reset with the russians. . >> schieffer: let's talk a little bit about libya. you were talking a lot about that. you and the president really kind of had a little set-to last week over the situation in libya because you said once again that you would oppose the nomination of susan rice to be secretary of state. a lot of people in the administration say

people. one way to go back to where it was under bill clinton. that's what the president's saying he won't budge on. another way though is to close loopholes or cap deductions. the think tank third way said you could get about $1.3 million capping deductions. that affects the wealthy. there's many ways to get revenue, why is he only saying i'm going to go for this way? >> let's remember that he was very conciliatory in his speech on election night. and he even reiterated today, erin, that if republicans have other ideas on how to get to where we need to go, if other democrats have other ideas, which would mean to deal with this in a balanced way that does not hurt middle class families, workers, seniors, the most vulnerable, i think he's willing to listen to that. so i think that is where the compromise can lie, if republicans really understand they're the ones that are going to need to give more. >> do you agree with that? the president did win electoral popular vote. the margin was only 2%, but he did win it. >> sure. well, elections have consequences, right? and this is the consequenc

term and bill clinton's was marred by his own personal issues. second trerms difficult. w. had a dficult time. one of the things i think they underestimate at the white house and the treasury is the idea of doing tax reform. when you both were probably in preschool, i was covering the '85, '86, tax reform act, and to call it heavy lifting is an understatement. it took a savvy, smart treasury secretary, jim baker, working with capitol hill and a supportive president, and democrats and republicans. i don't see any of those ingredients today to do tax reform in 2013, 2014. >> especially ifhe esident going to have a new treasury secretary. itim geithner, this has sort of been his-- tim geithner wanted to be behind tax reform, wanted to be the force behind corporate tax reform. that might speak to tim geithner staying on a little long fer they think they can get something done in the first six months. >> why is anything different now? why is anything different in the second term? >> good point. >> i'll turn the hosting to you. >> martha, i think they probably have leverage in the sh

[ world news ] more voters would blame republicans than obama if the two side failed to compromise before the fiscal cliff. it's political checkers. i was screaming when he compromised last time. but he was in a different position. now he's taking it to them again and even after an election they don't get it. he saidthere are stakes i

of our collective deliberations. as bill clinton might say, it's just arithmetic. in fact, this situation of a divided government has only two possible outcomes. action based upon good-faith compromise, or no action resulting from political deadlock. in my opinion, this latter, no action based upon deadlock, is simply unacceptable to the people of maine and to the people of the united states. we must find a way to act, because many of the problems before us, the debt and deficit is probably the best example, have a time fuse. the longer we avoid acting, the worse they get. in this case no decision is itself a decision. and it is almost undoubtedly the wrong decision. the challenges before us are too great, and the stakes are too high to allow partisan differences to keep us from finding common ground, even on the most difficult issues. and i hope that in a small way -- in a small way i may be able to act as a bridge between the parties. an honest broker to help nudge us towards solutions. i've talked with more than a dozen senators of both parties in the past three days and have been impr
